so i left a kettle burning and now my friend has convinced me that it is unsafe to use. i never would have thought of this. anyone know the deal about burned pots/pans--or in this case le creuset items?

    Is the enamel finish damaged? Cracked, flaking? Is the interior blackened, or just the exterior? If the enamel coating is intact on the interior & exterior, try giving the inside a thorough cleaning and boiling up a pot. If it doesn't have an off flavor, you're pretty safe.
